US Gov’t Gifts Two Patrol Boats to Georgia
The United States Government has transferring two Island-class patrol vessels to Georgia on October 18. The vessels Dioskuria and Ochamchire are fully equipped with modern navigation and communication systems. The ceremony of the conveying of vessels was held on the coast guard base in Poti. The event was opened by the Prime Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze and the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Internal Affairs Giorgi Gakharia. The ceremony was attended by members of the Government of Georgia, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the US Embassy, the NATO Liaison Office, as well as representatives of diplomatic corps accredited in Georgia and defense attachés of different countries. "We are happy that our strategic partners understand well the role of the Black Sea Region and of our country in particular in ensuring global security,” The PM stated while delivering speech. According to Bakhtadze the handover of the vessels by the US to the Georgia side is important in that it emphasizes the unwavering support of the US for the security and stability of Georgia and the Black Sea Region as a whole. “Symbolically, the ships handover coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Coast Guard…The relations and partnership between Georgia and the US are at their highest today. I avail myself of this opportunity to thank everyone for advancing these relations to such a high strategic level. The Black Sea already plays and will further continue to play a special role in the architecture of global security,” he added.

First Midnight Performance Held in Georgia
On October 13-14, 01:35 AM,  the first 18 Midnight Performance “Fallen in Love After Death” was held in Tbilisi, at Nodar Dumbadze State Youth Theater.  Previously, the play has been successfully performed at  Nodar Dumbadze State Youth Theater for the two theatrical seasons already.  This year, the new season was opened in an unusual way, with the 18 midnight performance.  It is noteworthy that there is no midnight theater in Georgia and it was the first precedent.   Being 18 years older was the main condition for attending the performance. The attendees of the performance had to purchase the tickets in advance, as the cashboxes did not work at midnight.   The author of the play is Avgust Edemonis. It is a kind of a hard psychological drama. The fact that the play was intended for a high age segment is first of all conditioned by its hard psychological storyline, not by the intimate scenes of the performance, what can be called “playing with the subconscious”.  The psychological drama “Fallen in Love After Death” is a story about the Georgian woman, whose husband, a soldier serving at the state border, is killed by a Russian senior official. The woman searches for the murderer in Russia, finds him and starts an unprecedented revenge by trying to tempt him. According to the director of the play, Natia Sokurashvili, who also performs the main female role, the performance is based not on the theatrical, but cinematic principles, what itself “violates” the usual rules of the theater and that is the main reason why it becomes more interesting and intriguing for the spectators.  „We wanted the performance to be experimental and innovative, so we added the footages and movie effects to it. Additionally, we tried to act as naturally on the stage as we did in front of the cameras. We did not want the performance to be excessively theatrical. My character is a woman who has been hurt by life. But, if you do not have some hard psychological traumas in your life, then you might not be able to do the things she does,” she said.   As for the character of the Russian senior official, he constantly tries to overcome the psychological obstacles during the performance. “The play contains the messages about the war and Georgian-Russian relations, but not in the global aspect. This performance depicts the story of the one s individual tragedy.  It shows how terrible the politics can be,” said actor Giorgi Iaradjuli, a performer of the Russian senior official s role. The play is based on the Russian-Georgian relations. The Russian characters are the examples of the standard and stereotypical Russian thinking. In the performance, they are presented as the alcoholics and street musicians. „My character is a  subordinate officer of the Russian senior official. He would do anything, even very bad things, for the sake of his boss, as he is a very obedient person,” said actor Irakli Managadze, who plays the role of the Russian policeman. The performance was received warmly by the audience and received positive feedback.  The first midnight theater in Georgia is a part of the initiative of the Tbilisi Night Economy Development Project initiated by the Georgian government in 2018.  The sponsor of the first midnight performance in Georgia was Teliani Valley.  The first midnight performance had a great feedback among the members of Georgian society. All the tickets were sold in advance. “Fallen in Love After Death” will be performed again in the coming months.

Елена & Ирина: Hello! If someone else doubts whether to entrust the organization of rest in Georgia to the My Sweet Georgia team, then I assure you that it is worth it! We are composed of 4 people, rested in the month of September in Batumi. Thanks to the My Sweet Georgia team, our holiday left the best impressions and desire to return again and again to a wonderful and hospitable region. Everything was arranged for the upper class! And accommodation in apartments overlooking the sea, and excursion program with a great guide Gocha! He is very grateful from our company! Thanks to everyone !!! We realized that we would be happy to be in Georgia again and again!

Ольга Турбина: The decision to go to Georgia was spontaneous. I certainly wanted a great guide. It was impossible to change the dates, because I decided to go immediately after the trip. For many years now I have asked you to help me in selecting Yulia's Vaska. And this time, as usual, I turned to her. . Without unnecessary inquiries, the tour was promptly selected. Oh, what wonderful guides I have! Gentleman George and Rusudan Japaridze. She is not just a guide, but the president of the guild of guides, a teacher at the university and a doctor of historical sciences? perfectly knowing the history of Georgia, Rusudan wonderful soul man! Loving his job. Sincere and open. I was imbued with her love for Georgia. However, it's impossible not to fall in love with Georgia! Architecture, nature, hospitality, delicious food-everything is on top! Perhaps this is the best country, from those where I was lucky to visit. And the best guides. I will return to Georgia necessarily!

Irina & Konstantin: 7-26 June 2018 traveled to beautiful Georgia with her husband, ordered an individual tour. The SweetGeorgia team at all stages of the trip planning gave good feedback, advised, chose, took into account all our wishes. Throughout the tour with us was Gocha Zurabovich, our guide, our driver. We are very grateful to this acquaintance, on this trip we found a wonderful friend in the person of Gochi) the atmosphere during the tour in every city, in every place wherever we were (and we were many where) were friendly, friendly, easy. Georgia is a very hospitable country! The route of our tour was observed according to the contract, but we made adjustments, if for example we wanted to suddenly go somewhere. The company is very loyal and flexible towards customers. Of the minuses I can say regret that we did not get to the dolphinarium in Batumi (swimming with dolphins), although it was mentioned several months ago. Because of the large flow of visitors, there were no tickets. I wish that tickets / reservations for such events were made in advance, and not in the & quot; last & quot; moment. You can write a lot and a long time, and still not express all the emotions that this trip gave us! We will necessarily arrive yet, and can even acquire real estate in this wonderful country) And we can say with certainty that the SweetGeorgia company can give its customers a wonderful variety of holidays in accordance with wishes! Special thanks to Yuri for the discount and attention to our pair. Thanks to Livani for the tour of old Tiflis, thank you for all the random and not casual acquaintances! Well, Gocha, our & quot; daddy & quot; we just adore! Very much we miss! Come with parents, with children, with loved ones, or just alone. In sunny Georgia you will not be alone!

Gaumarjos, Tbiliso!

Gaumarjos, Tbiliso!

THERE ARE CITIES that make sense. The streets glide along straight, clean lines, their names uniform from start to finish. Bridges are crossable. Signs point in the proper direction. Then there’s Tbilisi. Riotous and anarchic, the capital of Georgia is anything but organized. Locals use Soviet-era street names—Leselidze, Davitashvili, Perovskaya—found only on decades-old maps. Wine is sold in repurposed Coca-Cola bottles for a dollar a liter from boulevard underpasses. The electricity still cuts out in the heart of the “Kala,” Tbilisi's historic old town. Despite this—maybe even because of it—this city is one of the best, most strikingly original travel destinations in Europe or Asia, if not the world. Pop into an unmarked courtyard near the Armenian Norashen Church—overgrown with ripe pomegranates—and find yourself among well-fed stray cats in a bohemian artist’s studio (one of the workers may invite you for home-brewed, noxiously alcoholic chacha; he will not let you refuse, nor should you wish to). Sneak into the basement of the red-brick seminary across from Sioni Cathedral and buy Tbilisi’s best bread—dough thrown against the scalding sides of a circular tone oven—from an elderly kerchief-wearing woman for 30 cents a loaf. This Seaside Community Is Getting Swallowed by the Ocean Head up a slanting set of town house stairs in the fin de siècle neighborhood of Sololaki and find yourself in a speakeasy-style apartment café called Linville, where tables hide behind vines on wrought iron balconies and afternoon tango milongas take place under decorative Victorian parasols. Slip across the Dry Bridge, past the ruined frescoes of the former Grand Hotel, to the flea market and bargain with bearded ex-professors for wooden icons, Soviet-era gas masks, and Turkish tea glasses. Come more than once and the vendors will remember you (I buy my jewelry—traditional Georgian enameling—from the same seller every year; she recalls not just my taste, but that of the mother and grandmother I purchased gifts for). The cliché, of course, is that Tbilisi represents the epitome of East meets West: a Silk Road crossroads where Arab, Ottoman, Mongol, and Russian imperial forces each left their own distinctive cultural mark. And in the heart of the old town, where rugs dangle from whitewashed wooden balconies and bearded Georgian Orthodox priests jostle with tourists on narrow cobblestone streets, it’s a compelling fantasy. But the city's reality is far more complicated—and intoxicating.

Древние храмы Кахетии

Древние храмы Кахетии

Кахети - это родина не только вина. Это еще и места, интересные своим богатейшим культурным наследием и древними традициями. Всего в Кахети около 30 храмов. Самыми известными считаются монастыри Алаверди и Икалто, самым древним - храм Некреси.  Алаверди - одна из самых знаменитых средневековых церквей в Грузии, была построена в начале XI века и находится в 20 км. От г. Телави. Это - одно из самых высоких сооружений (45 м.) своего времени. Алаверди служила усыпальницей кахетинских царей. Некреси - город, который еще во II в. до нашей эры построил царь Парнаваз. Монастырь Некреси, сохранившийся в долине реки Алазани, состоит из нескольких культовых построек разных времен. Самая ранняя постройка – небольшая церковь конца IV в. Она была сооружена вскоре после провозглашения христианства официальной религией государства. Церковь построена из грубо отесанного камня и стоит на фундаменте, преобразованном в гробницу. В VI-VII веках здесь был возведён главный храм Пресвятой Девы, сохранивший фрагменты настенных надписей и фресок XVI века. В комплекс входили ещё купольная квадратная церковь (IX в.) и епископский дворец XVI в.  Икалтойский монастырь – один из первых в Грузии, а в Кахетии фактически самый первый. Он основан одним из ассирийских отцов, Зеноном Икалтойским  (ზენონი იყალთოელი) где-то после середины 6-го века. От строений той эпохи уже ничего не осталось. Существующие ныне храмы построены,  самое раннее, в VIII веке. Видимо, есть какая-то связь с возникновением независимого Кахетинского царства в те века. В тот же период на территории монастыря были построены давильни для винограда и винохранилища, частично сохранившиеся по сей день. В XII веке при царе Давиде Строителе был построен Успенский храм и пристроен корпус Академии. Эта академия вошла в историю тем, что в ней учился Шота Руставели. По этому случаю где-то в ноябре (в выходные) здесь отмечается локальный праздник Шотаоба.  В 1616 году шах Аббас сжег академию и тем поставил точку в ее истории. С этого момента монастырь почти прекратил свое существование и был восстановлен только в XIX веке.  Добро пожаловать в Цинандали! Цинандали – это не только сорт вина, но и село, в котором находится шикарное поместье кахетинских князей Чавчавадзе. Именно здесь заработал первый во всей Алазанской долине винный завод. До этого вино кахетинцы производили по старинке: в  огромных глиняных кувшинах-квеври. Дом-музей великого грузинского писателя, общественного деятеля и поэта Ильи Чавчавадзе (1837-1907гг.) расположен в фамильной усадьбе Чавчавадзе, в музейном комплексе. Заслуга Ильи Чавчавадзе перед Грузией на  столько значительна, что 2 августа 1987 г. Грузинской Православной Церковью он канонизирован как Святой Илья Праведный. На протяжении всего XIX века усадьба Чавчавадзе в Цинандали была настоящим центром светской жизни в Грузии. Здесь собирались музыканты, писатели и поэты, здесь Александр Грибоедов познакомился со своей будущей женой – княжной Ниной Чавчавадзе. Нынешний дворец Цинандали был построен в начале 1820-х годов известным грузинским поэтом и мыслителем Александром Чавчавадзе. Вокруг изящного особняка был разбит регулярный парк в английском стиле с разными редкими растениями типа пальм и бамбука. Особого внимания заслуживает приусадебная винодельня – марани. По площади она примерно равна всему господскому дому, а в ее подвалах хранится уникальная коллекция вина – винотека с 20 тысячами бутылок. В музейном комплексе входят фамильная башня, жилой дом, винный погреб, хлебо-пекарня, амбар, мельница на воде  и двухэтажный выставочный зал. В музее хранятся: мемориальные вещи Ильи и членов его семьи, рукописи Ильи, журналы и газеты учрежденные Ильей, фамильный герб Чавчавадзе, печать, бытовые предметы, ружья 17-19 века, мебель, рукописи грузинских и иностранных общественных деятелей, работы созданные по тематике произведений Ильи Чавчавадзе (Г. Гриневского, Л. Гудиашвили, К. Гурули, К. Малагашвили, У. Джапаридзе) большой фотоматериал и архивные документы.    В Цинандали пройдет дегустация Вин.

Квари - это вареники с грузинским сыром сулугуни. В Грузии это блюдо особо почитают в западном регионе Менгрелия. Начинка в квари обязательно сырная, хоть и допускаются некоторые добавки, например тыквы или зелени. В Грузии традиционно квари готовятся со смесью имеретинского рассольного сыра и сулугуни, а в Абхазии для начинки используется брынза с добавкой семян кинзы (цыбры). Но там, где имеретинский сыр не найти, как вариант, приготовьте начинку из смеси адыгейского сыра с сулугуни. Или из одного сулугуни, так будет вкуснее всего! Приготовить квари несложно, сложнее научиться защипывать, формируя традиционные «гребешки», сжимая край теста тремя пальцами (один вверху, два внизу). . Итак, сперва делаем начинку. 250 граммов сыра тщательно разминаем и подсаливаем так, чтобы масса была заметно солёной. Если начинка вышла слишком сыпучей можно добавить пару столовых ложек кипячёной воды - чтобы она легко скреплялась в комочки (которые мы будем вкладывать в кружки теста). Тесто. Высыпаем в миску полкило муки, разбиваем в неё 2 яйца и подливаем воду, размешивая руками. Тесто готово, когда оно перестаёт липнуть к рукам. Раскатываем тесто с помощью скалки, как для обычных пельменей. Большой кружкой вырезаем круги... - вы же знаете, как это делается, зря я пишу? =) Когда кружки теста готовы, пакуем в них начинку. Варим в зависимости от толщины теста до готовности (6-7 минут), чуть-чуть подсолив воду. Выкладываем на тарелку и смазываем небольшим количеством сливочного масла. Можно и без масла. Из указанных в рецепте количеств получается две большие, сытные порции вкусняшки под названием квари. Очень вкусно есть такие грузинские вареники со сметаной. Вот и весь рецепт =)
Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Эта курочка родом из Рачи. Рача (по-грузински это слова звучит немного иначе, но в русском языке нет согласных, которые бы точно могли передать некоторые грузинские звуки) - это тоже западный и тоже историко-этнографический район Грузии. Рача высокогорный регион, природа там красоты неописуемой, люди очень спокойные, даже медлительные и задумчивые, поэтому про рачинцев рассказывают смешные истории, где они понимают происходящее спустя долгое время, иногда даже годы. Это, конечно, шутка, но не без основания. Думаю, многие из вас хоть раз, да слышали слово "Хванчкара", это фантастическое вино тоже родом из Рачи, виноград, из которого оно получается растет в одном-единственном селе - Хванчкара, на высоте 560 метров над уровнем моря. Еще в Грузии славится рачинская ветчина, выделанная особым способом и лобио. Так вкусно, как готовят лобио в Раче, не готовят больше нигде! И конечно, лобиани - хлеб с фасолью, популярный по всей стране не меньше, чем хачапури. А теперь о сегодняшней курочке. Факт очень необычный, но факт. Крестьянское блюдо имеет точное место происхождения и даже известна фамилия человека, впервые приготовившего его. Шкмерули происходит от названия рачинского села Шкмери, расположенного на высоте 1720 м. над уровнем моря, там легко можно достать облака рукой, а приготовил его некий Гловели, но это как раз очень просто, почти все, кто там живет, носят эту фамилию. Говорят (за достоверность не ручаюсь), что блюдо это стало результатом крестьянской бережливости. Как-то у этого самого крестьянина возникла, скажем так, проблема с забитой птицей. Жалко было отдавать собакам целую курицу, вот и решил он попробовать ее спасти, а использовал то, что было под рукой. Зато теперь это очень популярное и очень вкусное блюдо! И еще одно отступление, но по теме. Для приготовления шкмерули используется традиционная в Западной Грузии глиняная сковорода - кеци, которая раскаляется на углях и долго и хорошо держит тепло. Я понимаю, что вы эту сковороду не то что иметь не можете, но и слышите о ней, возможно, впервые, я использовала ее для поддержания аутентичности, но как спокойно обойтись без нее, станет ясно из рецепта Курицу солим, обмазываем растительным маслом и жарим, можно в духовке, можно на плите, как вам удобно и привычно Пока жарится курица, почистим и раздавим (или растолчем в ступке) чеснок и отмерим молоко и воду Готовую курицу разделаем, жир, образовавшийся при жарке, сольем в пиалу Укладываем кусочки курицы в сковороду с высокими бортами или в кастрюлю с низкими, а лучше в красивую керамическую форму, которую можно ставить на огонь И готовим соус. Соединяем воду и молоко, доводим до кипения, чуть-чуть солим, не слишком, курица ведь соленая, вливаем в него немного жира, оставшегося от жарения, кладем чеснок, перемешиваем и выключаем Горячим соусом заливаем курицу. Поскольку кеци, на котором лежит курица должно быть горячим и соус тоже только с огня, в оригинале блюдо готово, но за неимением данного приспособления, мы поступим очень просто - поставим сковороду с курицей и соусом на низкий огонь на 1-2 минуты. Подают это блюдо горячим, так чтобы соус пускал пузырики, но если после обеда что-то останется, поставив это что-то в холодильник, на следующий день вы найдете курицу в желированном соусе, и это будет тоже очень вкусно!
Варенье из долек мандарина

Варенье из долек мандарина

Рецепт этого варенья из мандаринов является классическим вариантом приготовления заготовки. 1. Шесть крупных цитрусовых освободить от кожуры, убрать белую сеточку, разделить на дольки, а если имеются косточки, то их необходимо вынуть. 2. Выложить в кастрюлю, пересыпать сахаром в количестве 0,5 килограмма и оставить на 8 часов. 3. По истечении заданного срока водрузить емкость на конфорку, обеспечить подачу тепла, дождаться появления характерных пузырьков и варить, убавив огонь до минимума 20 минут. 4. После кинуть в кастрюлю палочку корицы и томить еще полчаса, периодически взбалтывая и убирая пену. 5. Выждав положенное время, палочку корицы вынуть, а содержимое уваривать до загустения еще около 1 часа. 6. После останется только разлить его по подвергнувшимся стерилизации банкам и закатать крышками. Варенье из мандаринов дольками можно приготовить и на основе сиропа. Вот этапы изготовления: 1. Цитрусовые в количестве 1 кг освободить от шкурки, белой сеточки и разделить на дольки. 2. Их необходимо выложить в кастрюлю, покрытую эмалью, и залить проточной водой таким образом, чтобы она покрыла собой все содержимое. 3. Включить газ и томить на слабом огне четверть часа. 4. По истечении заданного срока жидкость надо слить, а долькам дать возможность остыть. 5. Залить свежей чистой прохладной водой и не тревожить 24 часа. 6. В отдельную емкость насыпать сахар в объеме 1 кг, налить 200 мл воды и сварить сироп. 7. Вымоченные дольки нужно переложить в эту сладкую субстанцию, перемешать и оставить на 8 часов. 8. После останется только разложить сладость по стеклянным емкостям и закатать крышками. Советы по варке Собираясь приготовить мандариновое варенье, учтите особенности и вкус плодов, привезенных из разных стран. Фрукты из Грузии и Абхазии приятно кислят, что по достоинству оценят любители не слишком сладкого лакомства. К тому же в них содержится намного меньше химических веществ, используемых при обработке плодов. Турецкие мандарины светло-оранжевые, небольшие, и практически не содержат косточек, что тоже плюс. А цитрусовые из Израиля и Испании очень легко поддаются чистке. Существует множество рецептов приготовления мандаринового варенья с добавлением бананов, киви, яблок, имбиря, и других фруктов и специй. Если вы очень часто балуете детей и близких домашней выпечкой, то вам имеет смысл взбивать сваренное лакомство блендером и делать джем, чтобы потом его можно было употребить в качестве начинки пирогов, тортов, пирожков. Если вы не хотите закрывать варенье из целых фруктов, но есть желание использовать их кожуру, то вы можете предварительно натереть цедру на терке. Вариантов масса: пробуйте, экспериментируйте и ищите свой оригинальный рецепт. Приятного чаепития!
